rivalry between the presidents today? it's not personal again, just historical. if obama turns into a big success, as discussed earlier tonight, can he out-pace clinton? can he be truly transformational in saying what bill clinton was not. don't think the two of them aren't keeping a close watch on the score board. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, just in time for president's day. the gop's home on derange. right now, the president is on his way home from a weekend get away. but he'll return to washington the way he left it, with republicans blocking, opposing and grand standing. but, now, they're admitting the truth behind it all. former speaker newt gingrich let the cat out of the bag when he admitted any immigration bill put out by the white house will fail. why is that, mr. speaker? >> the obama plan led and driven in this atmosphere with the way he goads the hostility, i think it's very hard to imagine that his bill is going to pass the house
. speaker? >> the obama plan led and driven in this atmosphere with the way he goads the hostility, i think it's very hard to imagine that his bill is going to pass the house. >> so republicans will block any plan because it's an obama plan. because they personally don't like the president. senator marco sprubio called th plan dead on arrival. dead on arrival? the plan includes elements he's in favor of. the difference? president obama's name. then there's senator mccane. fresh off admitting what was ahead of national security. he was asked about his delusional conspiracy theories on libya. >> he was having a massive cover up. susan rice said there was a lot of confusion. i'm asking do you care -- >> do you care -- i'm asking you. do you care -- i'm asking you, do you care whether four americans died? do you have the reasons for that? shouldn't people be held accountable. >> you said there was a cover up. a cover up of what? >> of the information of concerning the deaths of four brave americans. >> senator mccain has no clue what cover up he's even talking about. and just listen to his budd
attack on the obama administration. and on regular americans all across the country. senate republicans are vowing to block richard cadre, president obama's pick to head the consumer financial protection bureau. that's the agency elizabeth warren set up to make sure big banks don't prey on regular americans. but, today, 43 republicans sent a letter saying they're worried the agency has too much power over the banks. and they won't allow the nomination to go ahe. this is outrageous. the right wing is doing everything it can to block this president. to stand against working class people. and to stand up for wall street. that i had' they're even willing to hurt the economy itself. it's that's what it takes to hurt the president, they're willing to do it. >> any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout. maybe a sour economy is worth it if it will distract obama. >> there's a lot of talk these days about how the gop can come back politically. the quickest possible way politically with a contracting economy, if it happened again in the next quarter, that'
week's catastrophic budget cuts, that republicans refuse to stop on tuesday, president obama will head to that navy yard, navy shipyard. after republicans have their hypocrisy. the gop for this disaster in the making, and cuts that will start next friday will hurt our recovery and cost up to 700 thousand jobs. >> it has become clear that the cuts would have an adverse impact on families, on teachers, and parents who rely on head start programs. on our military readiness. on mental health services. on medical research. this is not smart way for us to reduce the deficit. >> not smart? >> the president was just being gracious. these cuts are crazy. not republicans are not letting them happen. especially to protect the rich. the american people don't want any of these cuts that are about to kick in next friday. 80% of spending cuts on education, just 10% want the cut. 83% oppose spending cuts for food and drug inspections. just 14% want them. and 81% oppose spending cuts for roads and infrastructure. just 17% want them. it's simple. americans like their teachers teaching, their roads paved

's about to happen, they tried to blame barack obama. >> they voted for it, as you stated u almost 2-1 in terms of party lines for this. >> some of the right are starting to point out that boehner has stopped making sense. for example, byron york, of the conservative washington examiner, he wrote the effects of boehner's argue make it seem reasonable in come parson. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. this is in the washington examiner. a conservative paper. >> yeah, exactly right. i read the speaker's op erksz d in the journal. it was quite a disz aster for him. the sequester is something that has to be avoided at all costs. and both you and i agree on that. and then the second half says here are all the reasons why we'll refuse to compromise with the president on it. you can't say this is a disaster for the nation u being an elected public official who presumably comes to washington not to generate disasters and self-inflicted wounds, but to actually solve problems that americans know have to close the steel. and i think this is going to play very badly for republican
? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term. listen to those attacking senator hagel and you'll hear the yelps of pain, this motley crew of neocons and the sun belt feel. what they hate, despise, really, is the fact that now in the history books, the american people voting in great numbers reject their war-reich jinglistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president. who it wants to sign. and what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a day. and thanks for being with us tonight.

"politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, breaking news in an unprecedented, shocking move. republicans have filibustered a final vote on chuck hagel, president obama's pick to head the defense department. just four republicans join 54 democrats to support a vote on the nomination. now, you mugs know this is the first time in american history that a defense secretary nominee has been filibustered. forced to clear a 60 vote threshold. the president himself responded just minutes ago. >> chuck hagel, who, by the way, was a member of the republican caucus, a colleague of all of these folks who the republican leader mitch mcconnell and others consistently praised when he was still in the senate, has two purple stars -- two purple hearts, was an extraordinary soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations c
>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright
commandment. thou shall not speak ill of fellow republicans. >>> plus, president obama winning on issue after issue, even the right wing propaganda machine is changing. and fox news back pedals from an ugly hillary clinton smear. we have the tape. big show tonight, live from washington. stay with us. >>> have you joined the "politics nation" conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. today, our fans were talking about the celebrities coming out to push for new gun control. we asked folks to predict whether folks will pass an assault weapons ban. esther says i believe if enough make their voices heard, something positive will get done. rhea says i sure hope so. it just makes sense. laura is optimistic, too. rock on, chris rock. no backing down to the nra bullies. we want to hear what you think. please head over to facebook and search politics nation and like us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends.

, michelle obama will attend the funeral of hidaya pendleton, the 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed last month in chicago. change is hatching. it's real. today, former president clinton urged democrats to act. >> it's important to take some action now that it is posz sibl on the issue of gun violence. >>> i see this whole gun issue as an opportunity, not a toxic land mine. >> and now, in the senate, two democrats and two republicans are joining forces nearing a deal on background checks that could be the blueprint for a new law. next tuesday, all eyes will be on the president in his state of the yuchbon. but our hearts will be with those victims of gun violence in the hall and around the country. >>> joining me now, msnbc's chris hayes and melissa harris perry. melissa, you ever have a voice problem? >> not only that, i did two hours. i see you and i are both control freaks and will not give up the show even if we can't talk. >> my preacher voice is on. >>> listen, some people thought this unissue would go away. but, instead, it's like getting a new kind of momentum. >> i
the nra. today, president obama took his fight for gun safety outside of washington. calling for action. debunking the nra lies and making sure everyone knows we can't wait for change. >> we don't have to agree on everything to agree it's time to do something. if we've got lobbyists in washington, claiming to speak for gun owners, saying something different, we need to go to the source and reach out to people. directly. >> there's no legislation to eliminate all guns. there's no legislation being proposed to subvert the second amendmented. there won't be perfect solutions. we're not going to save every life. but we can make a difference. and that's our responsibility as americans. >> that's the reality of this gun debate. but the nra is pushing a fantasy. the head of the nra was pedaling misstatements on fox when he got called out for it, including his tv ad criticizing security for the president's daughters. >> mr. lapierre, do you regret putting up that ad? >> the point of that ad is this. it wasn't picking on the president's kids -- >> it mentions them. >> the president's kids are sa
that we act responsibly. we can't wait. today, first lady michelle obama anoungsed her guest at the state of the union will be this woman, the grieving mother of a 15-year-old hadiya pendleton. shefgs just laid to rest after being shot and killed in a chicago park. days after attending the president's inaugural facilities. we learned today a bipartisan group of senators is closing on an agreement over how to expand background checks. over 30, including the brother of this hero, victoria soto, the san sandyhook teacher who died protecting her students. this is a fight for all courageous victims of senseless tragedies and it's personal for this president. this hand hch written message from the president appeared on the program. it's a message to hadiya's family. in it, the president says that he is heartbroken by hadiya's death and he vows to fight to the end of senseless violence. this issue is personal for the president and for millions across the country. and we're seeing real urgency and more momentum. >> let me go to you, first, congressman. it seems the energy is not letting up, is it
obama took his fight for gun safety to his hometown of chicago. a city that's been torn apart by gun violence. in the crowd was mother of hadiya pendleton, the 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed just a week after attending the inauguration. >> fortunately, what happened to hadiya is not unique. too many of our children are being taken away from us. two months ago, america mourned 26 innocent first graders and their educators in newtown. the overwhether he will ming majority of americans are asking for some common sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun. these proposals deserve a vote in congress. they deserve a vote. >> they deserve a vote. these victims of violence deserve courage from our leaders. this morning, at the white house, the president got emotional. wiping away a tear while announcing medals for the teachers and educators at sandyhook elementary who died trying to protect their kids. >> they had no idea that evil was about to strike. they could have taken shelter by themselves, but they didn't. they gave their lives to pr
confronting republicans. an energized president obama rallied house democrats for his second term agenda today making clear he's pushing hard for big changes on immigrations and guns. and he sat he wants a big deal on the budget. >> i am prepared, eager and anxious to do a big deal, a big package, that ends this g governance by crisis. >> with the rich paying their fair share. >> they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea. but what they've suggested is that the only way to replace it right now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole. i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i'm more than willing to engage in because i believe the american people understand -- i believe the american people understand that yes, we need to reduce the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't just be on the backs of young people trying to get a college education. >> the president won the fairness debate in the fall. that's what the election was all about. today,
is getting as wide as the grand canyon. watch how they do it. president obama wants to keep the government going. republicans threaten to stop it. it's relentless. the fiscal abyss, the sequester. different words, different deadlines. all detonate the same explosion. they threaten to crash the government if they don't like who the american people have elected as president. isn't that what the republicans did back in the old days? if they didn't like a government somewhere, iran, chile, they brought it down. guess what. republicans are now using the same tactic here at home. if they don't like who we elected president, they find a way to discredit its leaders. do whatever to destroy it. they're using the cold war factics to destabilize our own country. look at the impact of the constant threats to shut down the government. it's all in the ratings. it's making people forever nervous about the basic ability of america to even have a running government. is that patriotic? i don't think so. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now.
angeles. tonight's lead. fighting for fairness. president obama threw down the gauntlet to republicans today demanding they move quickly to stop devastating budget cuts that could damage the economy and throw hundreds of thousands of people out of work. these are automatic cuts the congress agreed to. and they're going to go into effect in three weeks unless lawmakers act now. the president is fighting the republicans cut, cut, cut obsession. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> this self-inflicted wound would include massive cuts to virtually every government program. from medicare and housing to head start and food aid for children. the president wants republicans to d
the order to take him out, which was done with a drone in yemen on september 30, 2011. president obama's decision reminds me of this story. in 1955, israel's first prime minister in which he complained about innocent palestinians killed during israeli operations. >> that's "hardball" for now. thank you for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. thanks, michael. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the president confronting republicans. an energized president obama rallied house democrats for his second term agenda today making clear he's pushing hard for big changes on immigrations and guns. and he sat he wants a big deal on the budget. >> i am prepared, eager and anxious to do a big deal, a big package, that ends this g governance by crisis. >> with the rich paying their fair share. >> they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea. but what they've suggested is that the only way to replace it right now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole. i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to h
's lead. republicans trying to tank the economy again. today president obama called out the gop for refusing to stop catastrophic budget cuts due to hit next friday. cuts that could derail our entire economy. these cuts were never supposed to have happened. they were designed to be so awful that even republicans would see the light in compromise on a budget deal before they could take effect. but the gop refused. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> people will lose their jobs. these cuts will effect huge parts of the economy. and cripple essential government services that millions of people rely on. >> emergency responders like the ones who are here today, their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic con
be laughable if it weren't hundreds of thousands of jobs on the line. today president obama went to a shipyard in virginia, the state's largest industrial employer, to point out how crippling these budget cuts would be to our military, our safety net, and our economy. >> all told, the sequester could cost tens of thousands of jobs right here in virginia. but it doesn't just stop there. if the sequester goes into effect, more than 2,000 college students would lose their financial aid. early education like head start and early start would be eliminated for nearly a thousand children and around 18,000 fewer virginians will get the skills and training they need to find a job. >> these cuts are a disaster for virginia and they're a disaster for every state in the country. the president is trying to pull america together. but republicans are falling apart. joining me now is congressman bobby scott, democrat from virginia who traveled with the president today. and richard wolffe. congressman, help me out. does the republican position on these cuts make any sense at all to people in their district? >>
. president obama tells republicans to get on board or get out of the way. today, the president hit the road to promote the new second term agenda that he unvailed in the state of the union. >> he went outside the belt way to create change outside of washington. the message affairness. >> our job, as americans, is to restore that basic bargain that says if you work hard, if you're willing to meet your responsibleties, you can get ahead. it doesn't matter what you look like, it doesn't matter where you come from. >> fairness, justice, e quality. that was the president's focus last night on every single nation. creating a plan for the country that would create a more perfect union. >> make high-quality pre-school available to every single child in america. >> pursue a bipartisan market base to climate change. a bipartisan commission voting to improve the speens of america. equal benefits for their families, gay and straight. >> send me a comprehensive reform bill in the yies and i will sign it and america will be better for it. >> that's the promise from this president. and he won't let anyone
is for president obama to take the blame. if this isn't a perfect nice try, i gotchya, i don't know what is. the president knows it, too. >> lately, some people have been saying, well, maybe we'll just get the president some flexibility. he can make the cuts the way he wants and that way it won't be as damaging. you don't want to have to choose between let's say do i close funding for the disabled kid or the poor kid. >> it shouldn't be a choice between a disabled kid or a poor kid. how about a choice between oil companies or hedge fund managers. that's what the president wants to do. soften these harsh cuts by closing loopholes for the rich. so republicans, how about it? are you up for some balance? some fairness? >> why is the revenue discussion closed now? >> well, the president got his tax hikes. >> obama got his tax hikes? speaker boehner, what about the american people? 76% say they want to replace this cut, cut, cut mess with a mix of tax hikes and spend cuts. speaker boehner, i can't hear you? but can you hear me now? joining me now is joan walsh and ezera cline. thank you both for
. no gop reversal has been more dramatic than health care. >> we are not going to implement obama care. we are not going to expand medicaid. >> that's mr. scott, one of the eight gop governors signed on to the president's medicaid expansion. the key part of this health care will be implemented. this is progress. it hasn't been easy. at times, it's been down right messy. but you better believe, it's progress. it's a win. joining me now is richard wolffe and angela. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> it's a hard sell but republicans seem to crumble on a bunch of these issues. what's going on? >> they are picking fights they cannot win. they are picking fights about defense secretary who is always going to have enough votes. yes, they mess around with him. he was always going to get confirmed. it's a bit like the sequester. they have to cave. the pressure is too intense watching this unfold. medicaid dollars, really, are you going to have governors with the supreme court saying you have a choice. governors are going to turn down dollars that make them more popular
this, let's turn to the other big story of the day. the state of the union. president obama will build on his vision he laid out in his inaugural unveiling in detail his plan for the next four years and beyond. in an excerpt that has just been released, the president says a growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs that must be the north star that guides our efforts every day. we should ask ourselves three questions as a nation. how do we attract more jobs to our shores? how do we equip our people with the skills needed to do those jobs? how do we make sure that hard work leads to a decent living? that's the end of the quote. that's an excerpt from his state of the union address tonight. the president will also announce a major draw down from afghanistan. 34,000 troops will be coming back home. half the troops that are there now will be coming home. the first lady's guest tonight will reflect the president's priority. it includes a 102-year-old woman who waited on line three hours on election day so she could exercise her right to vote. it includes a college student from mex
